Albert Harvey (1986) and Kevin Ramos (1987), both grew up in the Netherlands. With their mutual passion for music a new friendship was born. Albert grew up with gospel, soul and folk music from his home country Surinam. For Kevin, music has always been a big part of his life, since his father is a well-known Latin artist and his mother a funky soul singer.
With their friendship as a solid base and their interest in music, fashion and art, they decided to join forces. Albert and Kevin grew to be a strong duo with a cross-over sound between pop and electronic music, inspired by their heroes Daft Punk, N*E*R*D and Coldplay. They decided to join forces and from that moment on, GLOWINTHEDARK was a fact! An identity which suits their creativity musically and performance-wise, as they light up the crowd with their electrifying performances, visualizing themselves as the light and energy on stage.
As a pop/electronic DJ/producer duo they have entered the international dance scene, with an already impressive list of shows, such as the worldwide-known Dirty Dutch events, the Miami Winter Music Conference, Mysteryland, Story Miami, Pacha Brazil, Ministry of Sound London and Tomorrowland. Their pop/electronic sound with influences from all around the globe, has also been doing well in Ibiza, the mecca of electronic dance music, where they have been residents at the prestigious Blue Marlin Ibiza and performed at Pacha, Ushuaïa, Privilege and now with their own night, at the new Cavalli Ibiza.
Their talent as producers, was also noticed by Chuckie, the force behind the world-famous Dirty Dutch sound, which led to their collaboration on ‘Electro Dude’ and later, on ‘NRG’, released on Spinnin’ Records. Their collaboration with none other than superstar David Guetta, introduced them to an even bigger audience. They met Guetta during the Winter Music Conference 2013 in Miami and the French star immediately liked their music, so they got in the studio together soon afterwards, where they finalized the smashing club banger ‘Ain’t A Party’, which was one of the most-played tracks in 2013. The track was released on David Guetta’s Jack Back Records and was included on David Guetta’s annual compilation album, ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’.
At the same time, they are working on their own fashion line. During their performances, they discovered the need for a fashionable, but practical way to organize their stuff and decided to design the ‘KEVIN ALBERT’ DJ bag. The line envisions their great sense for fashion.
2014 was another milestone for GLOWINTHEDARK after their 'MUG' release earlier in the year with BBC Radio 1’s radio-host Danny Howard & British producer T3NBEARS; the release of 'Charged' with Alvaro, their big Asia tour and a panel during Winter Music Conference in Miami. They also toured around Brazil in the run-up to the World Soccer Cup and collaborations with Deorro, when it comes to their creativity, do expect the unexpected!
2015 just started and GLOWINTHEDARK already released their collab with Uberjak’d ‘Ozzie’, launched their new label LightState Music in addition to their radioshow LightState, and an impressive pop-electro radio song ‘Get Over You’ in collaboration with Dutch YouTube icons ADAM, who have their own reality show on Dutch TV channel BNN. Besides, they are currently taking the world by storm with their unexpected appearance during David Guetta’s set at Ultra Music Festival 2015 to present their new collaboration to be released later this year. Miami Music Week has also been the chosen week to release their long-awaited collaboration with Tommie Sunshine and T3NBEARS called ‘Front 2tha Back’, as premiered at Ultra Music Festival’s mainstage on the previous edition.
At the moment, the DJ duo is busy in the studio finalizing their new songs and projects while scouting new talents together with Future Music Talent, a platform they are ambassadors from, and filling their label LightState Music with fresh, creative and original music they like; with a milestone track recently released: ‘Turnt Up’ by R-Wan featuring hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, and LightState’s 2015 Miami compilation.
Their potential to become one of the most promising pop/electronic duos is evidently visible through their energetic live performances. Considering their exceptional stage presence, successful collaborations and their ability to light up any crowd with their energy, one thing is certain…
Anything is possible when you GLOWINTHEDARK!
